Swimming season (Badsäsongen) is a combination of different artistic interventions and is based on bathing together all yearround in Sweden. Baths have been documented with video, sound, photo or text. Here we swim in Saltisbadet!
What you see and hear are people bathing together. Everyone is welcome at my baths. Regardless of who you are, I want you to feel represented, but then you
participation is also needed. All our bodies are in our society already loaded with prejudices and structures. Therefore, with my baths I try to remove the initially sensational aspect of nudity and instead focus on the poetic and utopian aspect of seeing people socializing without placing value on gender, age, body size, ethnicity, socio-economic background or other power structures.
